|Airline Escort Flights|
Airline medical escort or what we refer to as "First-Class Escort" is a service provided by ATS to patients that do not require private air ambulance services or a stretcher. Our "non-ambulatory" medical assistance is very appropriate for patients that sit-up or can tolerate sitting in a reclined first-class seat with an airline medical escort  for the associated time and distance. This airline medical escort service is very appropriate for CVA (stroke) patients, Cancer (CA) patients or patients that have chronic breathing problems such as COPD, Asthma or CHF. ATS routinely provides airline escort services to patients in hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation and private homes. Following a "medical screening" to determine the suitability for the airline medical escort, we will arrange for the necessary medical "clearance", in-flight oxygen, ticketing and set up all of the appropriate ground transportation.
A first-class seat with airline medical escort provides the patient with maximum comfort as the seat reclines back further and allows more leg room than coach. It also provides the specially trained flight nurse with more working space that will accommodate state-of-the-art medical equipment for complete monitoring and the appropriate in-flight medical care.
